Gold: CAN Eric Lamaze
Silver: SWE Rolf-Göran Bengtsson
Bronze: USA Beezie Madden


[Eric Lamaze] had a difficult time getting to the Olympics. He twice tested positive for cocaine and was left off Canada's 2000 and 2004 Olympic teams, and only avoided a lifetime ban by lawyering up. In Beijing Lamaze had two clean rounds to tie for first with 0 faults with Sweden's [Rolf-Göran Bengtsson]. Lamaze again went clean in the jump-off, winning the gold medal when Bengtsson missed one fence.

The bronze medal came to a seven-rider jump-off, which included the defending gold medalist, [Rodrigo Pessoa] of Brazil. He rode cleanly in the jump-off, but so did American [Beezie Madden] and German [Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum], with Madden winning the bronze medal on time, 35.25 to 35.37 for Michaels-Beerbaum. Pessoa took 37.04 to complete his jump-off round and seemed to finish fifth, but he would be disqualified when his horse, [Rufus] tested positive for nonivamide, a drug similar to capsaicin, and used for its anti-inflammatory properties.
